Greetings. For this in New England, I want to pass along an invitation to join us this coming weekend in Grafton, Massachusetts for the Small Stones Festival of the Arts (access the link for more information and directions). This represents a cooperative effort on the part of a number of area arts organizations as you can see.
I am grateful to the photography jurors (Nancy Burns, Scot Erb, Donna Dufault and Robert Ring) for choosing a number of my images for exhibit. They represent a fairly electic display, so we’ll see how that all works. I’ll be there on Friday night and again on Saturday afternoon.
I’m honored to report that one of my images just received a third place award at the “Anything Goes” Photography Exhibition at the Blackstone Valley Arts Association in Uxbridge, Massachusetts. There is some tremendous work in the exhibition so if you’re in the area, considering stopping in. I was particularly pleased because the juror was Stephen Dirado. He’s one of the top fine art photographers in New England and though I’ve actually never met him, I’ve followed him for some time. He shots large format black and white photography, and his imagery is absolutely stunning. This is an abstract image, taken at the South Natick Dam along the Charles River. I thought of a Greek Letter. You’re invited to draw your own conclusions.
I wanted to let folks know that I was fortunate enough to have one of my images selected by the Northern Valley Art League in Redding, California for their upcoming International Juried Photography Show. The juror was Jack Fulton of the San Francisco Art Institute. Northern Valley Art League is a significant supporter of the arts in northern California. I’m very grateful for their support. The image chosen was of the Spillway at the Quabbin Reservoir.
